What Our Clients Have To Say

  • 1st Commercial Lending helped me in finding the best terms that I was able to get from any lender, and then saw the process through all the way to closing the deal, capably answering all of my questions and concerns along the way.

    Of all of the lenders that I came across in this search, I found David to be the most knowledgeable and resourceful; he had thorough knowledge of his industry.

    If you have a need for financing the purchase of an agency I would highly recommend that you put 1st Commercial Lending on the "short list" of lenders that you need to give strong consideration to working with.
